Is every pijul repo impacted?

There's no way to tell. A patch (I couldn't tell which) was incorrectly recorded, and was causing a conflict that was impossible to resolve.

I identified a bug in the patch application code, which might have caused this. I could reproduce the bug on a minimal example, and it's now fixed.

Okay, thanks! If I am understanding this correctly, as long as I do not have any conflict I can’t explain, I should be okay?

Yes, this time pijul is able to interoperate between versions 0.4 and 0.5, but some 0.4 repositories might be "poisonned" with bad patches. It's not certain if / how this poisonning can be recovered from, and for pijul itself, we have opted for a history reboot, as it seemed to be the best use of our energy.

Thanks for the feedback. I think we can close this.
